The Guideline provides a tool to assist Local Authorities to meet the challenge of striking the right balance between their developmental role and the need to maintain environmental integrity in fulfilling the Constitutional obligations of sustainable development, socio-economic development and a safe and healthy environment, align with the Water Management Area’s Catchment Management Strategy and apply for the necessary water use authorisations. An Integrated Water Resource Management Plan aims to provide an all encompassing Water Management Plan that serves either as a stand alone document or as a supplement to the Water Services Development Plan and Integrated Waste Management Plan. Implementation of the Plan will be a positive step forward in ensuring that Local Authorities achieve sustainable integrated water resource management in line with the catchment vision set by the Catchment Management Agency. The book consists of an introduction to integrated water resource management from a Local Authority perspective and the Guideline for the preparation of an Integrated Water Resource Management Plan.
